Here is my third entry for the One Four Challenge. I went with a completely different approach on this one. Lately I’ve been noticing that I can get a higher light/dark contrast ratio when I start to change the white balance, tint, and some of the color elements on a photo when it is in B&W. Sometimes I like to switch it back to color just to see what it looks like based on what I did. When doing the B&W conversion I didn’t quite end up with this version but it was somewhat close and I wondered what it would look like if it made the red petals look more green to go more with the background.
Usually I don’t like to alter the color of something so this probably won’t happen very often. But I don’t think it really hurts the quality of the photo as it looks natural in this state. It looks more like it could be green clover rather than a red one.
I will also include the previous photos for comparison as well. Look forward to showing the B&W version next week!
